A Summer School on the Principles for a Free Society was held on 16-19 June in Trabzon, northeastern Turkey, in cooperation with the Turkish liberal think-tank the Association for Liberal Thinking. It was the first JHS Summer School to be held in Turkey, and the first jointly organized alumni conference.
Close to 200 students have participated in previous JHS and ALT seminars on the Principles for a Free Society. The twenty-two Summer School participants were students in political science, law and international relations. Among the seminar topics were toleration and freedom of the press, human rights, the fundamental values of the European Union, globalization, free enterprise and environmental protection.
